The Killers frontman backs the recent court ruling that Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke should pay royalties from 'Blurred Lines' to Marvin Gaye's estate because he thinks plagiarism is rife in the music industry and more people should be punished.

''I'm so sick of hearing people steal. I hate it.
''I hear it all the time but I'm not gonna tell you which bands. I won't, because I don't wanna start a whole thing.''

''Even when I was little, I would have known that.
''It blows my mind that people don't know their heroes are bad... I'm afraid to say anybody's name.''
